A glorious mess, this hotly anticipated sequel to history's most mind-altering action flick leapfrogs from yawn-inducing monologues to jaw-dropping chase and chop-socky sequences. Watching the storyboards come to life in the slick behind-the-scenes segment redoubles your sense of the directors' staggering technical achievement. But "extras" on the making of the movie-branded sports-drink ad campaign and the universally panned video game remind us that the real Matrix is programmed by marketers.

    “You Oughta Know”

    Alanis Morissette | 1995

    This blunt, bitter breakup song -- famous for its line "Would she go down on you in a theater?" -- was long rumored to be about Alanis Morissette getting dumped by Full House actor Dave Coulier. But while she never confirmed it was about him (Coulier himself says it is, however), she insisted the song wasn't all about scorn. "By no means is this record just a sexual, angry record," she told Rolling Stone. "The song wasn't written for the sake of revenge. It was written for the sake of release. I'm actually a pretty rational, calm person."
